's schools are falling behind. they rank 31st in math behind south korea, estonia, and luxembourg, which would really hurt their feel ftion they weren't also behind in geography. and it is particularly hard for children in poor communitys. according to a recent study, black children living in disadvantaged neighborhoods fall behind the equivalent of one year of schooling simply because of where they live. i can relate. i had to repeat sophomore year at dartmouth, just because i lived in east wheelock with mad matty b., choad expat nacho king. there were times we could barely afford to put schit on the fooz ball table. our public schools lack the resources to help children succeed. many classroom alphabets only go up to "r." a rue ragedy. nation, if we want to help poor students excel, we need to invest in more teachers, better resources, and newer facilities. in other words, they're screwed.

to paint for her new home in the luxembourg palace a series of more than 30 enormous canvases. they commemorated her four-year rule as regent after the assassination of her husband henry iv until louis came of age in 1614. even though maria wasn't really the queen at all, rubens employs the full apparatus of glamour, power, and glory to proclaim the greatness of her rule. king henry is shown being carried off to heaven, yet the action rushes towards maria, whose position in the painting is higher than the king's. odd, since he's the one going to heaven. but it's in the religious paintings that rubens pulls out all the stops. his church paintings, such as the descent from the cross, served the requirements of roman catholic counter reformation ideology, inspiring faith, inducing piety. the immediacy and individuality of the figures, the use of great circling arcs in the sweeping compositions, his dazzling use of color, all contribute to the heightened emotionalism that was intended to lift the spectator out of the everyday world into a state of exultation. his works are the mos
